Written for:  Poetic Asides PAD November 2020 Challenge - Day 18

"For today’s prompt, write a sea creature poem. Your sea creature could be the garden variety sea creature, like a shark, dolphin, or seahorse. Or it could be something more exotic like Godzilla, merfolk, or the kraken. Whatever your sea creature (or creatures) are, have fun poeming."


What has both a body and fins?
Mermaid who swims

Eight legs wiggling willy-nilly?
Octopus, silly

So petite, and sweet of course?
Tiny seahorse

Many sea creatures have great force
Never met a snapping turtle,
wouldn't even flirt a little.
mermaid who swims, octopus-silly, sea horse

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
